Recently I was pontificating at Kori Roys, a coworker who’s recently departed for some long-term travel, about what to bring and how to pack it. I gave him the highlights and promised to publish the full list. Well, that took enough time that he got under way — because it’s over 3,000 words. I had to put a fair amount of thought into traveling with just a small backpack, and I’m happy to share it now.
Here’s my Long-term Travel Gear List. I’ll be keeping it updated as I continue to tweak it, and I’ll publish a new blog post if and when I feel significant changes warrant it.
